The Lower Deschutes River Float Trip which begins at the Rainbow Bridge of the Warm Springs Tribal Reservation and ends at Trout Creek (approx. 10 river miles) is our most popular full day trip (approx. 8 hours) for targeting our famous Deschutes Redside Trout.

We will meet you at Fin & Fire Fly Shop at 7 am. Coffee will be ready and if needed you will be outfitted with waders and boots. Our shop is well-stocked and you can pick up any last-minute items. After getting outfitted, we will drive, in separate vehicles to the Safeway parking lot in Madras where you will leave your vehicle.  Guests will ride with the guide to the boat launch at Warm Springs, total drive time is about 45 minutes from our shop. After launching our drift boat at Warm Springs we will float and fish our way down the scenic Deschutes River. Your guide will work with you, helping you read the water properly as well as put you into some of our favorite spots. In these prime locations we will use a dry fly or nymphing tactics in an attempt to fool the beautiful Deschutes Redside trout.  Although we use our comfortable and spacious drift boats to access the river, you will be fishing from shore, as by law, we cannot fish from boats on the Deschutes, so be prepared for some walking.

Boaters Pass and Warm Spring Tribal License for each angler is included in the cost of the trip.

All anglers will need to purchase an Oregon Fishing License.

If you do not have an Oregon Fishing License. Please purchase them at this online site prior to your arrival.

    After launching our drift boat we float and fish our way down the scenic Deschutes River.

    At about the midpoint in the day your guide pull into a scenic spot to take a break and allow you to recharge your batteries and get ready for the second part of your fishing day. You will now be in the rhythm of the Deschutes and placing your flies exactly where they need to be to fool one of the great Deschutes trout.

    About 4pm will work towards the Trout Creek boat ramp where our truck and boat trailer will be waiting for you to take you back to your vehicle in Madras.
